Four species in the bay today
Today as we headed out to the bay for the five o´clock trip we were looking forward for it because we had been successful earlier seeing Minke whales, Humpback whales and white beaked dolphins. On the way over the bay we saw powerful spouts in the distains. As we came closer we noticed that we were seeing again a Blue whale like the last few days. We got to see how big this animal really is by seeing the huge spout and the big back coming up. We got a grate look at the Blue whale and decided to go further south to take al look at Humpback whales. We had seen the spouts from a distance and soon got a great look at them. As the time was running from us we set course towards Húsavík. On the way we enjoyed hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls.
